Pressure Coring Equipment Suite
Geotek Coring’s current wireline pressure coring tools, the G-PCS family (previously PTCS and HPTC), are optimized for harder formations, such as shale, indurated formations, or gas-hydrate-cemented sediments. They also provide good “total capture” in softer formations with some core disturbance. Techniques to further minimize disturbance in softer and interbedded formations are in development. Variants of these tools run in 5″ to 5 1/2″ and 6 5/8″ OD drill pipe. All interfaces with the drilling rig (custom bottom-hole assemblies, crossover subs, connections to wireline or slickline) are provided as part of the coring package.
